Char - lie, Char-lie, wha wad-na fol-lowthee? King o' the Highland hearts, bon-nie Prince Char-lie.
I ha'e bat ae son, my gallant young Donald;
But if I had ten, they should follow Glengarry ;
Health to M'Donald, and gallant Clan-Ronald,
For these arc the men that will die for their Charlie.
Follow thee, follow thee, &c.
I'll to Lochiel and Appin, and kneel to them ;
Down by Lord Murray and Roy of Kildarlie ;
Brave Mackintosh, he sha41 fly to the field wi' them ;
These are the lads I can trust wi' my Charlie.
Follow thee, follow thee, &c.
Down through the Lowlands, down wi' the whigamore,
Loyal true Highlanders, down wi' them rarely;
Ronald and Donald drive on wi' the braid claymore,
Over the necks of the foes o' Prince Charlie.
Follow thee, follow thee, &c.
" Cam' ye By Atiiol?" This song was written by James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd, was set to music by Neil
Gow, Jun., and appeared in " The Border Garland ;" a work of which the first number only was published.
The work seems to have been projected by Hogg, in order to give publicity to his own poetical and musical composi-
tions. As no second number was published, it is to be presumed that the first number did not receive popular
encouragement. Of the nine songs forming the first number, four were set to music by Hogg, three by " a friend of
the Editor," and two were adapted to old airs.
